Juan Nombela (Madrid, 1975) has a degree in Law, and specialised studies in Economics and Tax Laws, enabling him to carry out his professional career in the world of business, both as top management and as consultant. His real passion is for literature, and he has completed a Master in Publishing, at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and worked in a Madrid literary agency, in order to understand the world of books better. A keen reader, he has learnt the craft by long practice and dedication, and many hours of listening to authors and poets talk about their work.

His new novel delves into the hazardous world of sports and fame, in a story narrated by several voices reflecting on relationships between fathers and sons, first loves, and mortal mistakes.
